Coding a second read of 19083
We have a radiologist who is performing a second read of procedures 19083, 77065, and 76641 that were performed at an outside facility. Codes 77065-26, 77 and 76641-26, 77 were coded, but we are unsure how to code the second read by the radiologist for 19083 since the -26 modifier isn't allowed for the code and the 77 modifier also would not be completely applicable. Can you please help?
